During the last year, a homeowner in Gahanna, OH, has been keeping an eye on a horizontal crack that she noticed on one of her foundation walls. This crack has only grown and worsened since then, and the wall was starting to tilt inward. This raised a red flag to the homeowner. She was worried the wall would eventually fail and collapse. Because she plans to live in the house for many years, the owner wanted to take the steps necessary in protecting the safety and structural integrity of the home.
She was eager to contact Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online, and she was equally excited to meet with one of our expert inspectors. After completing a thorough evaluation of the wall and its condition, the inspector recommended the perfect permanent solution.
One of our experienced crews that specializes in foundation repair installed four Wall Anchors on the problematic foundation wall. These heavy-duty, galvanized steel anchors permanently stabilize the wall and offer the best opportunity to straighten the wall because of their unique design.
The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing her forever home will be a safer living environment because of this reliable repair solution.
